Today, organizations are reaping huge benefits by aligning Knowledge Management with business strategy and utilizing it as the mean to improve core business processes. A growing number of studies have been done regarding the factors affecting the knowledge management process from the employee’s perspectives, while very few studies have been conducted to explore the impact of knowledge management factors on knowledge management practices. In order to fill the empirical knowledge gap, this particular study was initiated with three objectives in the context of licensed commercial banks in Trincomalee District. The main objective of this study is to examine the influence of knowledge management factors on knowledge management practices. Furthermore, conceptual model has been developed to link knowledge management factors and knowledge management practices. Transformational Leadership, Organizational Culture and Information Technology are considered as the measurement variables of knowledge management factors. Meanwhile knowledge management practices are measured by Knowledge Creation, Knowledge Sharing, and Knowledge capturing and acquisition. In this study, a survey research design was used and data were collected through questionnaire from 150 employees of licensed commercial banks in Trincomalee District. These data were analysed by using multiple regression analysis. The findings of this study indicate that knowledge management factors and knowledge management practices are of high importance in licensed commercial banks and this study confirms that the knowledge management factors significantly influence knowledge management practices. Therefore, Favorable Transformational Leadership, Organizational Culture and Information Technology factors could lead to better knowledge management practices and contribute to organization’s success and achieve win-win situation.
